Thank you, Kate.


Although Kate Moss was the wench responsible for the advent of skinny jeans...she is making up for it now.

On a side note, I was in Virginia visiting my mom this weekend, and she was making fun of the leggings trend all the stores had been pushing--saying it never got picked up by consumers. I was like, Really? Because in New York leggings are so widespread that they're almost embarrassing to wear now. Did leggings and/or skinny jeans ever catch on where you guys live?
P.S. I still love leggings. Skinny jeans, not so much.

Neither the skinny jean nor leggins fad ever caught on here in Omaha. See? Sometimes it pays to come from a city completely devoid of any fashion sense.

If I wore leggings in Iowa, people would point and think I was stuck-up and proud of myself.
On another note, I kid you not. I was in the shower this morning, barely able to keep my eyes open, thinking, "I miss Laura's blog. I should tell her to blog again. Maybe she'll call it 3.0...."
I AM SO EXCITED I ALMOST PEED MY PANTS.

Yes, people in Missoula even wore leggings and skinny jeans. There is a hip high school right down town, I think that helps.

Neither caught on here either! Everyone here has their heads so far up Lilly Pulitzer's ass it's hard to tell whether their 3 or 33. I would totally do the leggings. Skinny jeans frighten this little mama, I'd rather go out in a garbage bag.

I want the Kate Moss for topshop asymetric leather jacket. You know, after I lose about 2 cup sizes.
